Use Router WNR614 as switch

Hello an please,

can you help me, set my router as switch with wifi?

I did the Configuration to my other "router as switch (fritzbox 4040)" and it function.

On the WNR614 i disable the as DHPC and pluged the lan cable from the bridge i use, to the lan-port of the WNR614.

But it doesn´t work. Is there in the menu of the WNR614 more to disable or to change? 

The brige is well working, because i used the WNR614 as router over the WAN-port and it function.

But i couldn´t use the printer from the other router/modem, so itried to set the WNR614 as switch.

So please help me and send me a solution for my network problem.

frindly Robert H.

   Often referred to as a Wireless Access Point (WAP), although the
wired LAN ports should also work.

   "DHCP", but ok.

   Not a very detailed problem description.  When you change the WNR614
from router mode (WAN port to main network) to access-point mode (LAN
port to main network), all the client devices which are connected to the
WNR614 must get new IP addresses from the DHCP server (probably in the
router) on the main network.  If you ever want to talk to the WNR614
user interface again, then you'll probably want to set its LAN interface
address to something on the main-network subnet.

   You might try following the steps in the following thread (written
for a C6300, but the principles are the same for a WNR614):

I'd reset the WNR614 first.
